Meaning flowing in Scottish Gaelic, Sruthail features a lace pattern with which swirls stitches from the centre of the sock to the outside edge. On the foot, the pattern covers half of the instep, then after the heel, the pattern is mirrored on the leg. Knit from the toe up with a gusset and heel flap, these socks are a great mix of relaxing knit and engaging pattern – perfect for travel knitting or chilling with a film!. With four widths and flexible length fitting, these are a great pattern for everyone.

The pattern is fully written and the lace is also charted so whichever way you like to read your patterns, you’re covered! The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted. There’s a screenshot of the pattern, and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos. You will also need to know how to do Judy’s Magic Cast-On and a stretchy bind off like Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off.
